After staying in a high end hotel in Phnom Penh, I wasn't expecting this hotel to be anywhere near the same standard. But even then it was way below par even for a budget hotel.
My room had no windows, and an old CRT television with a screen which had been scribbled on in permanent marker (no idea why!).
Everything is badly maintained and broken, sometimes to the point of being dangerous (the floor standing lamp in my room was stretched so taut that when I tried to move it a few inches the bulb fell out and shattered on the floor).
The shower fitting had half snapped off, so the shower head could only point at the adjacent wall and not at you. Not that it mattered much because the shower was a tiny dribble of lukewarm water anyway.
Unlike other reviewers though, I found the front desk staff very friendly. They always greeted us as we came back, and provided lots of help in planning our trips.
Its not their fault the hotel is badly maintained, I suspect the hotel just has an absent owner who doesn't really care much.
The breakfast is ok too. Not a great selection, but there's a constant supply of bread, eggs and bacon and melon.
You can walk to Pub Street from here in about 25 minutes, but really you're better off getting them to book a tuk-tuk.
